A car wash-cafe hybrid made its Atlanta debut last week.
Eco Car Spa and Amazing Salads and Smoothies opened Sept. 6 at 900 Northside Drive NW in Atlanta, offering waterless car washes alongside health-conscious dining options such as salads, smoothies and Italian ice.
“Eco Car Spa and Amazing Salads and Smoothies is a one-stop destination for those in search of a quick and healthy pit stop,” owner Lemont Bradley said in a prepared statement. “We wanted to make the act of getting one’s car detailed less boring and more efficient while also offering a more sustainable alternative to traditional car washes.”
Waiting for your car to be detailed? Order from a menu featuring a variety of smoothies, juices, salads, soups, sandwiches, wraps and Italian ice. Prices range from $3.50 for juices to $6.95 for prepared salads with protein options such as grilled chicken, salmon and turkey. Breakfast items served earlier in the day include an egg and cheese croissant and breakfast burrito.
Still looking for something to do while you’re waiting on your car? Eco Car Spa also offers hookah.
The car spa’s interior showcases a “West Midtown-meets-SoHo vibe,” according to a press release, featuring local artwork from Micah Eubanks (@Mike_Meezy) and Jacques Rozier (@therealques), a lounge area with tables and booths that seat 20 people, and an outdoor seating area.
The waterless car wash method uses biodegradable products that are more environmentally friendly than traditional car washes. Pckages range from a basic exterior wash starting at $15 to a full detail for $275 and up. Window tinting and additional services such as buffing, headlight restoration, claying and paint correction also are available.
Bradley is also the owner of car detailing business Auto Spa Bistro, which will celebrate a decade in business at 348 14th St. NW next year and also offers food and drinks.
Eco Car Spa and Amazing Salads and Smoothies is open from 8 a.m.-7 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Friday-Saturday.
